Abstract

Reductions in Valencia orange juice quality or yield are less likely to occur from applications of pest control oil spray in the late summer than at any other time of the year, according to a three-year investigation conducted in Orange County. Potential reduction of juice quality following the use of oil spray on citrus has assumed increased economic importance recently because larger volumes of the crop are going to the juice concentrates market.
